Does CBS Seriously Want Sheen Back?
Charlie Sheen’s “WINNING” streak continues, as RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting that CBS wants the troubled actor back on ‘Two and a Half Men’ just weeks after Warner Bros. unceremoniously fired him from the show.
Insiders claim that a top network executive is ready to move on from Sheen’s recent erratic behavior, which included a very public fallout with show creator Chuck Lorre, in which the tiger blood-fueled Sheen referred to Lorre as a “clown” and a “turd,” among other things.
Sources also say that CBS President and CEO Les Moonves has spoken directly with Warner Bros., and that the move is contingent on whether Sheen’s relationship with Lorre can be salvaged.
Meanwhile, TMZ also reported that Sheen met with Fox executives last Thursday about various projects at the network (among them a late-night talk show).
The future of ‘Two and a Half Men’ has been in limbo since Sheen was fired by Warner Bros. on Mar. 7. (The show halted production on its current season immediately after.) There were reports that actors Rob Lowe and John Stamos were being considered as replacements, but those reports have since been denied.
